Concentrations 10

The Shadowed Man   
6" x 8"

For my 10th concentration, the medium I used for The Shadowed Man is pencil.  The Pencils I used for this piece is a 2H, HB, 2B, 4B, and 6B. I used a shading pencil to give a smooth look to the suit.  To give a harsh aspect to the face, I used a kneaded eraser to lift parts of the pencil.  This also gives the statue, a worn look.  The darkened eyes gives a sullen and scowling expression.  For his mustache, I used a kneaded eraser again and outlined the organic shapes to give texture.  I also used this technique for the beard.  The shadows of the trees add to the erie atmosphere of the entire drawing and overall completes this drawing. I really enjoyed drawing this picture mainly because of the statues eyes.  I like the invert colors with his face in contrast with his eyes.
